For all the beautiful tall girls and the problems we have to endure. Through all the teasing, feeling out of place & short hems, I'm finally coming to a point where I realized that there's nothing wrong with being a little different. People still try to tear me down about it but there will always be people doing that. These problems are mostly to make you laugh & go "OH MY GOD. THAT'S MY LIFE." But this is more than just a place to share each other's problems. It's a support group where we encourage girls to see the beauty within them (so play nice, ladies). Ask me anything & feel free to submit!
"You're only as tall as your heart will let you be and you're only as small as the world will make you seem."
So, I usually have a hard time buying pants, I’m 6’05 (184cm) and I’ve got 36 in denim jeans and well.. All pants really! But I found that Topshop has a Tall section, so I tried on a pair of “office” looking pans (high waist and all), and guess what THEY WHERE TO LONG!!!! I’m mighty impressed! Some items are not even that expensive, and as a student I get a discount, I love it! And I need to add, I am 22, so I’m very happy to find young and fashionable clothes!
Today, I was an annoucer for a theatre program. I wore these really cute heels, I’m 6’0” naturally so the heels made me like 6’4”. this one director ran up and asked how tall I was without the heels I told him 5’11 and he said “I was in ballet for awhile and i got partnered up with this girl who was 6’3 naturally and I was like oh great *rubs face with hands* i know who I’m gonna be paired with.” then i fake laughed and he walked away. I’m thinking well thanks for letting me know how guys feel when their paired with me…
Hi. My name is Kala and I am 18 years old and i am 6 feet tall and have been since the eighth grade. I hated it for a really long time. Tall runs in the family, as it often does. My dad is 6’ 3” and i got the gene. I Hated standing out in the crowd. I hated shopping at all because nothing would fit. I got stuck in a Deb dressing room one time and had to have my friend and her mom (both like 5’ 5” ) shield me as i got out. But i always thought it was a bad thing, especially because i didn’t play basketball or anything. I hated my height. But as i got older i began to accept myself for who i am. And now i have a wonderful boyfriend who loves me for my height and accepts it. So moral of the story, if you get down on yourself for your height, or if you ever find yourself putting your self down for it, remember that you are beautiful and there is some one out there who loves you for it.
So I’m tall. I’m 5’9” and I’ve accepted it, for the most part. I have a love/hate relationship with shopping but I still wear what I want. My problem with being tall is that if there is someone shorter than me at the barn, I don’t get asked to ride the ponies): I mean I can because I’m a light rider, which basically means that I don’t pound on their back or move my hands too much, but because my legs are so long they hang past the horses stomach and I hit the more sensitive areas. I love ponies! They’re my favorite and because I’m stinkin’ 5’9” I don’t get to ride them. However on the bright side of my height, I have the “look” most judges look for when they’re judging the rider. Judges like the long leg look. Like I said, I’ve accepted my height but I wanna ride ponies. Your blog is really helpful too. The posts encouraged me to wear heels again because they are another love of mine.
That moment when you find a really hot guy but he’s shorter than you.
